iron dome, israel's missile defense system is working phenomenally. many of its rockets, because of this iron dome, are not hitting their targets. could we see more attacks on the streets by terrorists, like in this bus attack? >> that's true, iron dome is an amazing success story, first anti-rocket device in history to actually work in warfare. we've taken down about 90% of the terrorist rockets that would have hit in our cities. they're going to hit outside the cities. and, yes, the terrorists will try anything to get at our civili civilians. we've seen it before. many, many bus bombings like this. we've all lost friends. i've lost a close family member in those bus bombings. they're very, very close for us. >> do activievents like this complicate secretary hillary clinton's efforts? >> they certainly don't help. where terrorists in gaza cannot open fire on us every week and paralyze half the country when they will. also the goal is to prevent iran from smuggling advanced weaponry and rockets into gaza that the terrorists then fire at our civilian. >> israeli ambassador to the uni

about it. turkey has asked for and been granted a nato patriot air defense missiles. they're clearly worried about rockets and missiles coming into turkey from syria from the regime of bashar al assad. how worried should turkey be about engaging with syria in an actual war? >> wolf, the turks are very worried. and the turks are very disappointed. i've spent a fair amount of time in turkey this last year or so. they're very disappointed in washington's abdication. they feel that washington has left them holding the bag. the prime minister has always felt that he had kind of an inside relationship with president obama. but now the turks are left where they are. they are left with this running, shooting campaigns with the syrians. they're left with well over perhaps 120,000, 130,000 syrian refugees and they feel they have been left alone. the patriot missiles are the least we can do for them. >> thank you. >> thank you, wolf. >>> could air travel cost you more if the country goes over that so-called fiscal cliff? up next, the doomsday scenario some experts are now painting. i'm breathin

defense system could protect vast areas and could shoot down the majority of hamas rockets. and one of the things it's going to get out of this from the united states is additional help in providing more missiles for iron dome so that it has even a greater range of protection. so the dynamics are changing a little bit on both sides. both sides can claim victory. but neither side can win militarily and both sides know that. >> you just brought up iron dome. you also brought up hezbollah, which brings up the question of iran here, another major actor, maybe the key actor in opposition to israel in the region. if you're iran and you just watched this for the last ten days, what do you take from it? >> well, that israel does have means of protecting itself. it does have this new iron dome defense capability. i'm not convinced that iran actually, if it is developing a nuclear weapon, has the intention of using it against israel. but what it -- what the bigger question really is would hezbollah and neighboring -- in a country that neighbors israel use the rockets that iran provides in challe

conservatives who believe that national defense is very important, but i'm willing to say that not all money spent on the military is sacred. so i would compromise there. but i'm not willing to raise taxes when we're still spending $300,000 a year on robotic squirrels to watch rattlesnakes attack a robotic squirrel that doesn't wag its tail to see whether or not the rattlesnake will still attack the robot squirrel. $300,000. $2 million spent on how we can convince chinese prostitutes not to drink so much on the job. there is a huge amount of waste. >> i can hear the americans shaking their heads. let me ask you this, if you compromise on defense what about possib possibl possibly, senator paul, raising t the age. would you be on board with that? >> yes, i don't think we have to trade tax increases for entitlement reforms. we should fix entitlements because they're broken. >> shouldn't democrats and republicans give at the same time? i know democrats say, hey, we won the election, but let's be fair. >> the way i look at it is is entitlements are broken. it is not my fault. it is not dem

. they're trying to get political support. >> they lost their key defense chief also. there was another player the past few days. mohamed morsi. he's largely credited by the u.s. for helping the ceasefire happen. he did something extraordinary overnight. he gave himself some new administrative powers which makes all his rulings immune from any kind of legal challenges. some people are saying this is just the next step of becoming more of a dictator here. was he taking advantage of the situation? >> well, we'll have to watch this closely. it appears the timing is curious. he's gotten the support and this bump particularly for his role in mediating the ceasefire from the united states and from others. he's seen as emerging stronger from this. this goes back to a time when egypt was appointed by mubarak and a check on the executive branch. what he said this is temporary. until the have a constitution, a temporary step. so we'll have to see if anything looks like it's being put into place permanently, could be a big problem for democracy. >> thanks to stuart holliday from the united nations

years or so? >> well, as you probably know i'm completely against war. i believe in self-defense. i believe if you get hit, you hit back. preemptive wars i don't believe in. i don't think they're necessary. i think wars are started to make money. they make money for the people who start a war over here and a war over there and sell bombs to both sides. >> when you look at what happens in the middle east in my lifetime i can remember, pretty much most of yours. do you see any hope there or any chance of actually peace in the middle east? >> if you believe in the bible, it says two things. it says there will always be wars and rumors of wars. it also says for a thousand years somewhere in the future we have peace. so hopefully those thousand years are coming up on us. >> were you pleased barack obama got re-elected? >> i'm glad he got re-elected. i think he has a lot of things in his favor, the things that he has ran on. the women all believe in the things that he's talking about. the blacks and the hispanics and the women and if you have those three things on your side, you're going
